    Alright, basically I have a Power Color Radeon x800, and lately I have been playing CS:S. I play for a while, and get uninterrupted sometimes, but others the game freezes on me.

    Then tonight, the first time this happened...my monitor just shut off. To the orange idle color. My comp was on and all.

    Does anyone know a solution to this?

    Creds rewarded.

    Sounds more like a problem with your monitor not your video card, were you able to get a screen shot of the problem?

    check monitor, then check power supply, or see if the card is artifacting at all with ATI tool.

    Well, I can't get an SS of a frozen screen, or a black one =P. But I mean my temp is running about 41-42 on CSS, when I check. How do I go about that one xe?
